I want to place an image that is stored somewhere on my computer hard drive in a question, but the website only tells you how to insert pictures that are from websites. I tried copying and pasting the image but that doesn't work. The picture I am trying to upload is a JPEG image of a circuit built in multisim. Can anybody help me out please?

When you click image it lets you choose between "from my computer" or "from the web". There is a selection right above where you place path.

I presume that by "the website" you mean https://electronics.stackexchange.com/editing-help? That's probably a little more involved than you initially wanted to learn. Most of the functionality is available by just hovering over the editor toolbar. (Note: A lot of information on this site is contained in hover text!):

Hover over the icons for information on their function (if it's not obvious from the appearance). There are also keyboard shortcuts for each function. In order, they are:

  • CTRL-B - Bold
  • CTRL-I - Italic
  • CTRL-L - Insert Link
  • CTRL-Q - Block Quote
  • CRTL-K - Code Block
  • CTRL-G - Upload a Graphic from computer or website
  • CTRL-O - Ordered (numbered) List
  • CTRL-U - Unordered (bullet) List
  • CTRL-H - Heading
  • CTRL-R - Horizontal Line
  • CTRL-Z - Undo
  • CTRL-Shift-Z - Redo

For the text formatting options, you can either select the text that you want to change, or click the button and it will begin the formatting.
